Default Cavy for Auto Cross

Ok I should be starting to get my hands dirty with this project shortly. Overall I want to complete this in a budget and have a cavalier that looks stock but will still be competive.

Here is the game plan.


ENGINE
95 2.3L intake camshaft, *VIN D #24574239
93-94 Quad 4 exhaust cam, *VIN D #24570698
GM small block high tension valve springs
full rebuilt .040 bore with 10.0.1 pistons light wieght rods
.005 shaved deck .010 shaved head and triple steal head gasket
port and polish head 35mm valves stainless steal installed
56mm trottle body custom cold air intake possibly cheap inner cooler
stock cooling 160f t-stat
venom intake with spacer
a/c delete pulley
moroso oil pump


EXHASUT
2.5" exhaust 4-2-1 Ceramic Race Header DC sports #CHR3001,
heat wrapped for temp
rear exhaust 2.5" custom probably Magnaflow parts

SUSPENSION
D-Spec Series 1.4 Inch Lowering Kit adjustable ciolovers Tokico #DSK501
Anti-Roll Kit Front 26mm & Rear 22mm Anti-Sway Bars Eibach #3860.320
strut brase cheap already have
Custom independent rear suspensionfrom 2000 Grand am GT
complete rear N body set up.

BRAKES
N/BODY Upgrade front spindles and bearings from 2000 Malibu
12" rotors drilled and dimpled ebc
F body front calipers
98 F/body front pads hawk #HB249F.575
rear disc stock N/body with bearings and spindles
rear 2000 Malibu pads hawk #HB359F.543 definetly cryo treated rotors
1998 F/body master cylinder for 4wheel disc
rerout rear brake lines install dual brake biasing valve Wilwood sku# wwvalve
custom braided steal lines 2 front 1 rear stock ABS set up

DRIVE TRAIN
Transmission stock
Short throw shifter Fidanza #898000

Clutch
light wieght spec flywheel
FX400 Steel Back Heavy Duty Street/Track Clutch Kit clutch master #04-160-HDCB

Axles
hybrid outer jiont 36mm on stock inner axle.

WHEELS AND TIRES
Now 5x115 thanks to conversion of brakes
possibly sport edition f7 17x7 21.5lbs. or nascar Sonoma 18"x7.5" 20.5lbs. or stock
GM replacement in 17 or 18
225/45zr17 or 225/40zr18BFG G-force supersport A/S or BFG G-force t/a KD

EXTERIOR
sleeper ssshhh
possibly rear adjustable wing if needed after test

All together I figure about 6500-8g's depending how much I can find at a pick a part yard. It should handle grate still be driveable on the street and emmissions legal but I wouldn't daily drive it with that clutch. Roughly get 225HP and 198TQ plus I figure 19MPG if my calculation is correct.





Here is the Car.


Here is what i have so far

Front control arm bushings, all poly mounts, spec flywheel, strut braces,front Fbody hawk pads, Rear Nbody hawk pads(I picked up both sets for 48.84 total), mtrans out put seals, and i also have the front rotors ebc gd7005, front axles reman, and camshafts used but mint waiting for pick up.


I still need
Clutch (havn't decided what to run)
Front spindles and bearings used about 40 for both
Front calipers reman 80 a piece
Front and rear brake lines stainless 100 for set.
Rear independent suspension with brakes about 150 used
Rear Rotors cross drilled 45.99 each
Engine work about 800 in parts 300 at machine shop labor free
Trottle body intake about 800
Ciol overs 750
Exhaust about 550
suspension bracing 200
rims and tires depends on what I decide

Looks like you have things going well for the project. Why do you project such low mpg?

Very nice.... Your going after the right things for the track!

I cant tell you how happy i am to not see a park bench bolted on the trunk and a bunch of neon lights...

Clutch, go with a spec. You have a spec flywheel, might as well grab a spec clutch to go with ti. Stage 3 6 puck will do great for any track racing, and is still manageable on the street.

When you grab wheels, dont go too big or you wont be able to lower the car much. Grab 17"s imo, not sure what width would fit on your car. I would bet a 17" x 8" would fit good, and let you get some decent size tires on it. And done cheap out on wheels either, good quality wheels will last longer, are lighter, and the paint doesnt fade or peel as easily.

The only problemwith the wheels is I want something factory looking I do like the oracles but there not light wieght I'm thinking of a factory wheel like the Grand prix 17 inch or other.

This is the oracle

I agree, keeping it stock would be fun. It be a pretty mean sleeper. But i would think that most stock wheels just arent wide enough. Have you decided, or researched what the max size tire is you can fit on the car? That will play a role in what size wheels to get. I wanted to be able to run 285x40x18 on my supra in the rear, which meant i needed atleast a 10" wide rim.

For the cavy, i would think something around a 235-245x17 would be perfect for some racing.


I did a little looking around at some wheels i thought you may like.

My favorites of them all:TSW Vortex 17x8
http://www.1010tires.com/wheel.asp?w...-+Hyper+Silver

There are tons of options out there.... Just look around. And when you find something you like, research it and see if it has any problems. Every wheel i looked at i googled things like "XXX wheels suck" or "XXX wheels cracked" or "XXX are junk" and it will often time pull up other forums where people talk about what bad experiences they have had with them. If nothing turns up, then it just up to your judgment....

I do like the vortex the best but I won't use tuner style lug nuts actually I would like to use the standard Gm with the black plastic caps on each nut. Cheesy I know but I really like oem design. Thge Oracle just does a great job of OEM look with after market appeal it reminds me of the equinox wheel or 98 fbody or even simmilar style to the extremes10 wheel

I determined today i can use the left front axle from a 2000 grand am with nor problem i'm waiting for the ight to come in to see if it will work right or not. We still have some questions about the ABS we believe the reluctor on the new bearings has the same number of teeth as the old axle but not positive since the bearing is sealed so were going to scope it and see.

ABS? Rip that crap out! It will get in the way on the track. And will save you a good 20lbs or so.
